A view from Grandview Point on the south rim of the Grand Canyon in Arizona, USA. Storm clouds gathering in the distance, and the Colorado River slowly winding its way along the canyon floor.

altro eccellente colpo d'occhio sul Grand Canyon che hai avuto modo di visitare in una giornata con eccellenti condizioni di luce.
Uno spettacolo sempre grandioso e ricco di effetti scenografici che ovviamente hai saputo esaltare al messimo.
Ciao e buona giornata

Your images of the Grand canyon never fail to inspire Brian. The fringe of greenery gives the shot depth and immediacy, its not some view over there (with a wave of the hand) but up close and personal. I like that. The clouds are as beautifully detailed as the rock strata and add a very good contrast. warm regards rosemary

Hi Brian. It lives up to its name, both the English and the Spanish one for both its grandeur and the superb colours.Wonderful POV and details. i don't think those dead branches in the sky contribute much to the composition. Regards. Klaudio.

The clouds add a lot to the drama in this picture, as if Grand Canyon was not enough. The green foreground vegetation looks exactly like In that famous Hockney painting, only this is for real. A magnificient view!

Une superbe vue sur le grand canyon, des couleurs superbes et un ciel qui valorise l'ensemble
Excellent cadrage à la verticale
macjake (61566) 2013-08-22 8:13
now thats a cloud formation!!
excellent quality even into the most deepest part of the scene Brian.
and your signature colors are very attractive as always.
you've got the clouds, the branches for framing, the Canyon for the wow factor and the light..what more could we ask for!

great photo of this beautiful place, the Grand Canyon is simply fanatstic, and the clouds create a mysterious atmosphere
PaulVDV (24435) 2013-08-22 9:33
The light created very beautiful reddish and purple tones on the rocks and also made that big cloud formation stand out well. The green on the foreground adds more colour to this splendid and well composed picture.
Best regards, Paul

Hello Brian,as if the spectacular landscape wasn`t enough you`ve been able to include a very interesting sky,it`s another stunning Grand Canyon shot.
The use of the foliage as a frame works well for me.
All the best Les.

This is a fantastic place, but it's stunning beauty makes people susceptible to all kinds of foto-errors. You have skillfully avoided them all! Using the tree on the right to link the sky with the foreground is a particular touch of genius. Well done!

Superbe photo de ce fantastique endroit. Les couleurs sont magnifiques et la composition verticale permet d'admirer de nombreux détails dont ces fantastiques nuages en arrière plan. Très bonne profondeur de champ.

very nice colorful landscape here. Good POV and vertical composition. Fine glance on the famous Grand Canyon. Photo I like a lot.
Have a nice day.

All the colors of the palette are present here ;)
The green leaves brings a lot to this very classical (but awesome) composition
This place must be unbelievable ...
